Field Manual

Design Edit

The MSE-3 is a 6x6 armoured personnel carrier that can be adapted to suit many roles, not limited to but including reconnaissance, troop transport, and fire support.

It is fitted with an RCWS turret that is armed with a dual-mount 12.7 mm heavy machine gun and 40 mm automatic grenade launcher.

The externally mounted RCWS comes pre-loaded with a single 500 round belt of 12.7 mm ammunition, and also has 96 rounds of high-explosive (HE) 40 mm grenades.

A relatively compact-sized APC, it has good handling both on and off-road and has a decent turn rate. It is also amphibious-capable and can cross water channels while providing cover fire for dismounted troops.

However, it has far less armour compared to its NATO and AAF counterparts. Nor does it possess the same kind of firepower that would enable it to tackle threats beyond infantry and other soft targets. Nonetheless, it is still decently armoured enough to at least be able to protect its crew and passengers from small arms fire and non-large explosives.

The MSE-3 has a seating capacity of eleven personnel including the crew. The crew includes the driver, gunner and commander.

Camouflage Edit

  • Hex: Arid Hexacam camouflage pattern. Useful for forested, grass plains, and desert environments.
  • Green Hex: Tropical Hexacam pattern camouflage. This is used in heavily forested and tropic environments.

Trivia Edit

  • The Marid is based on the real-world 6x6 variant of the "Arma", a Turkish-made APC designed by Otokar.
  • Marid translates to "rebellious" in Arabic, and is often synonymous with demons.
